Finding the right role
Whatever your skills, there’s a volunteer role for you:
- First aider – Imagine how it would feel to be
part of a team that saves lives. As a first aider, you’ll deliver
care to people in need at public events in your community
- Healthcare professionals – nurses, doctors and
paramedics play a vital role for us at larger events. Clinical
leaders support professional development help us keep our standards
- Working with young people – as a youth leader,
you could teach life saving skills to the next generation, and
offer them life changing opportunities
- Management positions – whether it’s looking
after your local unit, or supporting a number of units in your
area, as a volunteer manager you’ll gain in experience and develop
your skills, and help us deliver our life saving work
- Specialist roles – we’re also looking for
volunteers who can lend their expertise to roles such as
safeguarding, human resources, quality assurance and health and
What you’ll get in return
Volunteer with us, and we’ll teach you first
aid (whatever role you’ve signed up to), and provide you
with equipment and uniform.
We’ll also make sure that you get all the training and
support you need to excel in your role. All we ask in
return is that you’re professional in your approach and
committed to our life saving work.
